“Great Addition’ Carragher Keen For Liverpool To Snap Up La Liga Playmaker

Jamie Carragher

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher wants the club to bring back Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

Despite manager Jurgen Klopp appearing to rule out a move for the Brazilian playmaker, the former Reds defender, turned TV pundit, thinks the Merseyside club should try and bring him back:

“I said it before, I’d love to see Liverpool bring back Coutinho back if that was possible in any way. Obviously, it hasn’t worked out for him at Barcelona. I just think that would be a great addition.”

It appears that finances may be playing a big part in Liverpool opting against a move for Coutinho.

The 27-year-old is seemingly available this summer with Barca having already signed Antoine Griezmann, while they are also keen on re-signing Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain.

There has been talk that Coutinho could be used as a makeweight in the deal for Neymar but it appears PSG are looking for a straight cash offer.

It could leave the midfielder in a tricky situation. Very few clubs could afford the Brazilian international’s transfer fee and wages, but he’s unlikely to be a regular at the Camp Nou next season.

Could a loan deal be on the cards, and would Liverpool be interested? We shall have to wait and see.
